Combine Music, Yoga and Role-Playing for Wellness: Dr. Louise Montello at Inner Peace Yoga Center
Inner Peace Yoga Center, in Indianapolis, and Dr. Louise Montello are offering music and sound healing together with yoga, breathing exercises and role play in two highly unique invigorating sessions from 7 to 9 p.m. on July 13, and 1 to 5 p.m., July 14. This workshop is open to anyone wanting to experience more creativity and self-expression.
Dr. Montello is an internationally known authority on music and wellness and award-winning author of Essential Musical Intelligence: Using Music as Your Path to Healing, Creativity and Radiant Wholeness (Quest 2002). A licensed psychoanalyst, music therapist and Founder/Director of the Creative Arts Therapy Certificate Program at The New School, she conducted clinical research on using integrative music therapy to treat and prevent musicians’ stress-related disorders in the Department of Psychology at New York University for more than 10 years. In an effort to bring her ground-breaking music therapy-based prevention program to the musical community, Dr. Montello co-founded the nonprofit Musicians’ Wellness, Inc. with her NYU research partner, neuropsychologist and composer Dr. Edgar E. Coons in 2000.
“Music soothes by harmonizing our body’s natural rhythms,” says Montello. “As you listen, your heart rate, blood pressure and brain waves synchronize, and your respiration slows down.”
Inner Peace Yoga Center Inc. is a nonprofit educational organization, a Yoga Alliance- Registered Yoga School, dedicated to teaching the keys to relaxation, stress reduction and self-unfoldment through the time-tested practices of hatha yoga and meditation which are integral parts of yoga science.
